Myles Matsuno is a director based in Los Angeles who has been a huge developmental part of my creative career. He’s given me the opportunity to be a part of a number of projects over the years as a DP or Producer with our work ranging from Non-profits, to graduate universities, to short films and a number or potential larger scale projects in the works.
Our most successful venture to date was actually the first project we ever collaborated on, Under the Sun, which was in the 2011 Festival De Cannes Short Film Corner. We made Under the Sun for the Los Angeles 48 Hour Film Festival which gave us a character name, a genre, a prop and a line of dialogue to include in the script and then 48 hours to complete the project from concept to export. Despite the obvious constraints of working in such a short time span I’m really proud of the project and the fact that it got into Cannes.
